all the time. remember the famous picture of chelsea clinton after the monica lewinsky affair walking between her parents to the helicopter? or hold on, let me just finish. and this time before the dnc when the white house released a picture of the president with his two daughters snuggling on the couch, there it, watching michelle obama. look, they use their children for political purposes hen they want. to. >> first of all, walking with chelsea to the helicopter, they were going on vacation. so what are they supposed to do, take her to another helicopter or through the back door somewhere? >> it was the hand-holding and connecting them, rollland. >> okay, so what? if there was a photo and there were no hand-holding then, it's okay? seriously. that is not the same as putting an ad out where you are mentioning the president's daughters. it makes no sense. and again, if you're the nra, you don't have to actually do that. you don't have to go that far. if you want to do that, why don't you say okay, why don't you go to chicago and say how many armed guards are there in chicago's schools

by executive order to decide he can go beyond the constitution. >> reporter: remember as well when bill clinton was in the white house in the early '90s he pushed some gun control legislation there was a massive political backlash against democratic members of congress who voted for that in the 1994 midterm elections. what the white house believes may be different this time, not just newtown, but this whole series of tragedies like tucson, aurora, colorado, and newtown having some children killed, they think the political dynamic has changed. we shall see, jenna. jenna: we will see if it sets the tone for the second term of the president which is about to officially begin. back to the white house as news develops. thanks very much. jon: before bringing his proposals to the president the vice president met with representativesing from the entertainment and videogame industry and other lawmakers attacked hollywood over increasing violence portrayed. so what will the president do? will there be any pushes for changes in the videogame and entertainment industries? chief washington correspondent jam

department under presidents, both george w. bush and bill clinton. why do you make these assertions coming back from iran? did you have high-level meetings in which you were privy to information our state department is not privy to? >> well, we met with a range of people. we met with people from the government but students at the university. we were actually invited by the university of tehran. we met with students, professors. we met with a range of people in iran, and what we come back with is a sense that walking in the streets of tehran, going to the university, going into the marketplace, this is not a country that is on the brink of implosion, that sanctions are somehow going to cripple and force it to concede to american or any other demands. and this is something that when we did the research for our book, we found historically, we have seen american so-called iran experts predict literally since the founding of the republic of iran back in 1979, that this political order is on the brink of implosion or regime change. this is something coming back from our most recent trip to iran.
